Comment on Raw deal for Alice from NTG & Murdoch Advocate by Hal Duell.

There is a glaring omission in this Anzac precinct story, and that’s the why of it. We have two successful politicians in Gunner and Ryan insisting that theirs is the better offer, but they have yet to give us a compelling reason to follow them.
Through their stubborness they have turned the proposed art gallery into a political football, a local tug-of-war, and to what end?
Can the Heritage Council get the question of the oval’s and the school’s heritage value onto their agenda, and then seek a court order prohibiting any moves until their heritage value is resolved?

Megafauna museum: Locals outnumber tourists
Erwin, a minor point, but when these large birds were first discovered a few years ago, they were referred to in the local press as the Ducks of Doom. Much better than Big Bird.


Budget repair: Check out the cost of this load of rubbish
Thanks for the story, Erwin.
You’ve detailed a journey into the bureaucratic maze of “it’s not mine / I didn’t do it”.
Talk about kicking a can down the road!
I also like your suggestion that the NT government sack half its public servants and compel the remainder to do their jobs.
That’s another can ready to be kicked down the road.


Massive horse deaths now a risk to humans
Are you saying, Eugene’s mate, that the dead animals should be left as a community health hazard while CLC asks for someone’s permission to heap them up for burning or for burial?
Or perhaps that’s not CLC’s job or problem, but then it never is, is it?


Massive horse deaths now a risk to humans
In a drought, especially if twinned with poor land management, stock will die. That’s one thing.
Then there’s the dead carcasses to dispose of. That’s the next thing.
Heap them up to burn or bury. That’s a no-brainer.
The CLC is acting like a rabbit caught in the headlights.


All views about gallery location will be considered: Lauren Moss
From time to time political commentary throws up a new and apt phrase. The one I’m thinking of is “nothing burger”.
This whole art gallery shemozzle is looking more and more like a nothing burger.
